If you come to Quito before going to Galapagos, here at Casa Joaquín Boutique Hotel, we help you to do the PCR test at the hotel so that you can leave in peace. And if you come to Quito after visiting Galapagos, we help you manage your test to return to your country, if it is a necessary requirement.
